CHILD: PORTRAITS BY 40 GREAT ARTISTS. Juliet Heslewood. Frances Lincoln Ltd, London, 2013. 96 pp. with 57 ills. (52 col.). 22 x 18 cm. ISBN 9780711233379 In English.
Publisher's description: Juliet Heslewood, art historian and author of Mother and Lover, brings together a collection of portraits of artists' children, through history to the present day. The evolution of these portraits begins with a unique and intimate relationship. Looking at each work and considering its individual history can tell us much about this relationship, and about the artist and the time and place in which it was created. The portraits are shown chronologically, and the changing nature of the subject can be seen as time rolls forward over centuries to the present day. From Holbein, Rubens and Rembrandt to Gauguin, Chagall and Picasso, over forty portraits make up this collection of artists' children. A fascinating combination of biographical anecdote and art history, it is also a celebration of the bond between parent and child.
